Earlier this week it was announced that AJ, Brian, Howie, Kevin, Nick will return to London next year on July 6th to perform at Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Hyde Park - as special guests alongside pop supergroup McBusted!
The very special date comes on top of Backstreet Boys' hugely popular UK tour which kicks off in March.
Beginning March 26th at Birmingham's LG Arena, the 'In A World Like This' tour will include dates at The O2 in Dublin, Manchester's Phones 4u Arena, Glasgow's Hydro and The O2 in London. With the boys being unable to cater to public demand by adding a second date at London's O2, they jumped at the opportunity to give their fans another chance to see them live in London as a part of the line-up at the upcoming Hyde Park show.
Backstreet Boys said: 'We saw the excitement about McBusted first hand when we were in the UK last month, so when we received a special invitation to take to the stage at Hyde Park next summer we could not say no! We can't wait to get back to the UK for our tour in March and April and to now have the chance to return to London in the summer will make 2014 extra special for our fans."
Last in the UK for the triumphant 'NKOTBSB' 2011 tour, the band return with Kevin Richardson ' marking these dates as the first they have done with all original members in nearly 10 years.
Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean and Kevin Richardson, together as the Backstreet Boys, are this year celebrating their 20th anniversary. Formed in Orlando, Florida in 1993, they are the most successful boy band in music history. The group have sold over 130 million records worldwide, with globally successful and recognized hits including 'I Want It That Way', 'Everybody (Backstreets Back)' and 'As Long As You Love Me', In recognition of their success, they received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on April 22, 2013.
December 16th sees the release of the stunning new single 'Show'Em (What You're Made Of)'. Taken from their new album 'In A World Like This', the breathtaking ballad was co-written by band members Kevin Richardson and AJ McClean as an ode to their children.
